One warm evening, Larry Moore was smoking cigars outdoors with his son when it occurred to them that they would have nowhere to smoke come winter. Out of this quandary rose En Fuego Tobacco Shop, a lounge where Larry, his sons, and the rest of the community can gather to smoke cigars, talk shop, and watch ball games at ease. The rich aroma of pipe tobacco wafts past the lounge's exposed brick walls and cushy, leather chairs, and cigars from Nicaragua, Honduras, and the Dominican Republic receive study-abroad credit for filling the shop's humidors.
At Facelogic, botanical-based creams and clinical cosmeceutical blends work hand-in-hand to stall the aging process, defeat dryness, and erase blemishes. Éminence organic products use natural ingredients to treat common skin conditions without harsh chemicals, and the Image Skincare line delivers alpha- and beta-hydroxyl acids to the skin in order to erase signs of aging and acne blemishes. Services include spray tanning, waxing, back treatments, and hydrafacials. Dr. Kenneth Baird is responsible for the spa's cosmetic injections, which infuse skin with Botox, Juvéderm, or Restylane to lessen the depth of fine lines and wrinkles.
At BoomerJack's Grill & Bar, diners feast on spicy and savory dishes, complemented by refreshing drinks and the frequent shouts of cheering sports fans. Appetizers include hand-battered and fried mushrooms, pickles, and the restaurant?s eponymous Boomer chips, freshly sliced jalape?os served with a homemade sauce. Chefs also sculpt a half pound of ground beef into a behemoth of a burger, adorned with aged cheddar or blue cheese crumbles. Lemon pepper or Cajun seasoning spices up a fillet of farm-raised catfish, while grilled peppers and onions top Ray?s sizzling sausage sandwich made from ground filet mignon and pork.
Cooks in the kitchen at Spice House of India marinate chicken in spice and yogurt before baking it in clay tandoori ovens, releasing bouquets of cumin, curry, and pepper. They cover shrimp vindaloo in spicy curry with fresh green chilies and craft paneer cheese, which grows tender beneath creamy sauces. Indian music fills the dining area where patrons sip mango lassis made with fresh fruit and yogurt, like the least-durable buildings. Sound carries into a pub area with flat-screen TVs and a menu of Indian-influenced pub food including chicken wings tossed in masala sauce or mango and chili.
An artful twist of the thread ensnares the strand, and a quick motion frees it from the follicle. That's all there is to threading, but it takes a careful eye and a precise hand to master this ancient art of hair removal. Luckily, these are both qualities that define the technicians at SOI Brow Threading Salon. Their threading sessions remove hair from the eyebrows as well as the chin, upper lip, and second nose, sloughing away dead skin in the process.

Brewmancers summon Saxbys Coffee's wide selection of roasts from single-origin, fair-trade, and organic beans, which undergo a European roasting process to prepare cocoa-noted Tanzanian peaberries and italiano blends for beverage Valhalla. Frolattes—a frozen breed of latte rarely found in nature—are catalogued in such flavors as white-chocolate mocha and British Islander ($3.70–$4.70) alongside many species of teas ($1.50–$2.20) and fruity smoothies ($3.45–$4.50). Lounging cyborgs can stop by to bask in the soothing aura of the shop's free WiFi while sipping their selection.
